The Timelapse Engine is an open-source firmware for the Arduino microcontroller engine providing advanced motion control and timelapse capabilities for up to four stepper motors. This is the core component for use in an Reference Design based system.
Slim is a text/terminal-based interface to the engine, enabling real-time, scripted, and program control using a series of commands. It is written in perl, is easily modified, and an excellent way to test changes to the engine.
OpenMoco::Interface::Timelapse is an open-source API for the perl language to communicate with the Timelapse Engine. Useful for creating your own scripts and software quickly and easily.
The MX2 Dolly Engine is an open-source firmware for the Arduino microntroller, with an attached DollyShield providing a simple-to-use interface and control system for a motion control rig using DC motors and up to two axes. This is an extension component for use in a Reference Design based system.
The MicroEngine is a small light weight time lapse engine based on an Arduino and the DFRobot LCD Keypad Shield. MicroEngine is designed for use in studio timelapse work, providing control over lighting, and interaction with several different input triggers such as lightning and laser detection.
miniE is an engine sketch to provide control over a single stepper motor and camera, using an Arduino and DFRobot LCD Keypad shield. It is a minimalist design providing all the necessary features to do shoot-move-shoot timelapse with a built-in UI.
User-Contributed and Other Free Timelapse Software
TimeIsMotion is a free software package and custom firmware for enabling custom ramps and other controls for the Meade DS (aka 'milapse') telescope head.
The TimeLapse Calculator is a cool project by Dan Thompson that makes it easy to quickly determine the interval, frames per second, and time parameters for any timelapse film.
